Each year the Army, Air Force, Navy, National Guard and other military bases must dispose of used or unneeded mattresses and furniture, most of which come from the barracks during renovations or are worn out. The Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services (DLA) is trying to find green solutions for their unwanted mattresses and furniture. LRP Recycling will work with the DLA and military bases to help them with their sustainability efforts. LRP Recycling provides all the logistics necessary to remove and transport these mattresses and furniture pieces from any military installation.
Our main goal is to prevent these items from ending up in a landfill.
How LRP Recycling Can Help
LRP Recycling is a Mattress Recycling Service that provides all the logistics necessary to remove and transport these mattresses from any hotel nationwide. Our main goal is to prevent these items from ending up in a landfill.
We might be able to reduce your cost if you are currently disposing of mattresses during any renovations. We recycle mattresses nationally, which should cost significantly less than disposal and it's easier than ordering numerous roll-offs. We also have an install/removal team for mattresses if you need to outsource that portion of a project.
Materials We Recycle
Wood - The wood is determined to either be solid or compressed. Then depending on the type it can be potentially be repurposed or made into mulch, energy fuel, animal bedding, and wood chips.
Steel - Much of the steel wire used to make mattress inner-springs and box-springs are made from recycled scrap steel. Once the mattress is discarded, the steel wire can again be melted and poured into new steel products such as nuts and screws.
Fabric, Cotton & Foam - The cotton and foam are sold to companies that use the materials for insulation and foam padding used underneath wall-to-wall carpets and in other cushioning applications.
Official Documented Proof
Once the mattresses are removed from your facility and recycled, your institution will receive a Certificate of Total Recycling that you can proudly display. The certificate will document that no items from your facility have ended up in a landfill as well as the weights and process types used to recycle the mattresses.
